This thesis covers both fundamental and nuanced issues relating to accounting and, more specifically, financial reporting. These issues range from cash flow analysis to bank auditing opinions. The thesis is a compilation of twelve case studies assigned by Dr. Victoria Dickinson in the Professional Research and Development Program. From a broader perspective, the insight gained through this thesis is primarily concerned with how the three fundamental financial statements, the balance sheet, income statement, and statement of cash flows interact with one another within a given fact set. Transactions, estimates, and adjustments can influence all three financial statements, changing how financial statement users perceive a company. Therefore, it is extremely important to understand how these items fit into the financial reporting framework.
